Pros: Good overall rosin, much better than my old one (which I'd bought completely randomly about 4 years ago.) I don't really have much basis for comparison, but it works well, and I don't have to use it too much.
Cons: Again, I can't compare it with much, but I don't know of any cons.

Pros: An excellent quality gold speck rosin, nicely packaged. I'm currently trialing various gold speck rosins and this one is certainly a premium product.
Cons: Pricey but the quality IS there and noticable
Other: Mine wasn't packaged well in the post (unusually for Stringzone) and box was a bit battered in the corners.

Pros: Gives a great smooth sound, you can definitely hear the difference. Minimal dust and beautifully packaged.
Cons: The price may be a little high but this is definitely an excellent quality product so some may find the price worth it. I would definitely buy this again.

Pros: I first bought Laubach Gold Rosin well over a year ago and used it very much the same as I had used a cheaper standard rosin, applying loads of the stuff regularly throughout my practise sessions, but after a while I tended to apply it far less frequently as my playing improved until eventually I'd just be applying it every other session or sometimes even less. However, when the time came to replace it, out of convienience I bought the cheaper standard rosin from a local shop thinking that'll do, it's only rosin after all but within seconds of playing with the cheap stuff it became apparent that I had to get my hands on Laubach Gold Rosin again so I immediately placed an order and received it a few days later. Three passes of Laubach Gold along my bow every now and again is all that is needed and my playing continues to improve, albeit very slowly but that's down to me not the rosin.
Cons: Ok so it's a little pricey, but using it like I do it should last a couple of years if looked after and what with the lovely golden crushed velvet backing cloth and natty little box it does look a bit special.
Other: To buy a cheaper rosin is probably just a false economy.

Pros: bought this for my partner, a very enthusiastic amateur, she loves the richness of sound this roisin helps produce. i can hear a much better "sound" when she plays
Cons: none yet
Other: she also likes the magnetic lid box.

Pros: I like this rosin. It allows a smoothness to the bow, previous rosins havn't. It also sheds very little dust. It has also made a slight difference to how the violin sounds. A good product, I would certainly buy it again when it needs replacing.
Cons: No cons found.
